History of the Měnín Gate
The Měnín Gate was named after the surrounding city quarter and was located at the mouth of Měnínská (today Orlí) Street. Mentioned as the fifth of the city’s gates, it is the only exit from the city that has been preserved and remains in use today. It is quite exceptional that only one street leads to it – some historians tend to consider this as evidence a certain deviation from the city plan and believe that there were originally two convergent streets meeting at the gate, one of which was later built over. But also this theory also has its opponents.
